Learn to Play Hockey (LTPH)

Grizzlies Learn to Play

The Nashoba Grizzlies Learn to Play Hockey program is designed for boys and girls who are looking to learn the game of hockey and develop their hockey skills. The program is designed for skaters who have not previously been and are not currently on a hockey team.

The Nashoba Youth Hockey Association follows the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM), which focuses on the philosophy of building better players by first building better citizens and athletes. Our goal is to give every skater proficiency on the ice and to foster good sportsmanship and good citizenship in all our members.
